Dear Dr. WaterWISE:
When our teacher said you were coming to school, we thought it would be a puppet show or something! We were so surprised to find out you're a real scientist and a girl! Thank you for bringing the kit with our own personal water logs, measuring tape, shower timers and leak-detector tablets.
We had lots of fun collecting data and graphing our water use in our water logs. We were surprised how much water the toilet uses in an average day. By the way, when one of us put in the blue droplet thing in his toilet at home and didn't tell Mom, she was very worried when the water turned blue!
It's very strange that if you use, say 31.8 gallons each day you think that is so little, but it really is a whole lot. Now, whenever we wash our hands, we rinse, turn off the water to scrub and then rinse again. We know it's just a small change, but if everyone did it, or any other water saving thing like it, we might be able to save at least five gallons every day.
It was so cool when you had Zach put all of those gallon jugs on the rope to show how much water he used in one day. We would have to carry that around if we didn't have faucets and machinery.
We told our parents all the things we learned about water. Their mouths opened up a little. We think they were proud of us. Thank you for teaching us the value of water.
Your Water Savers
